changing of the guards wasnt on that day. Save your money and go on a walking tour by yourself. westminster abbey isnt that expensive to get into and the changing of the guards is free just check the time and get there like an hour before hand to get a good spot, went the next day when the changing of the guards and did pretty much everything that was on this tour and did it for half the price, save your money and spend it on something well worth it
Mark was our guide and very informative. He also took us to an area less crowded so we could see the Changing of the Guard it is not at the heart of Buckingham Palace - just FYI. Just be prepared to walk fast and a little ways to get there for that portion. You tour the Abbey first, then go to the Changing of the Guard. Overall, it was good. Our 9 and 13 year old got a little bored during the Abbey portion, but that is just age and less interest in historical info! Nice tour.
We had a great tour of Westminster by Augusta August 2017 and she was very good in her knowledge of history, detail and a great tour guide! She knew a great viewing spot exactly where to go for changing of the guard and her timing was perfect so we can see it all. It was wonderful.
The Westminster Abbey component was the only part of the trip that was value for money and worth doing. The changing of the guard was a mad dash to see the guards go back into the barracks. The changing all happened prior to us getting there.
this was a wonderful , informative tour thanks to our guide Augusta Harris who was so informative with facts and side stories I didn't expect. she had very interesting facts and amusing stories that went with these facts as we all know history can sometimes be a little dry.
highly recommend this tour with Augusta
